Redensyl seems to be the ultimate hair loss treatment — particularly for male pattern baldness. It’s anti inflammatory, anti androgen and studies claim it improves blood circulation in the scalp as effectively as Minoxidil.
Diclofenac is the active ingredient in Voltarol anti-inflammatory gel, so it’s not surprising to me that when applied to the scalp of balding men, it triggers new hair growth by reducing inflammation (a key cause of male pattern baldness).
Topical Latanoprost was discovered to significantly increase eye lash growth, making it a world-wide sensation. But it also seems it can be used to increase scalp hair growth. Here’s how to do it…
The Numan subscription is a Minoxidil spray, a vitamins supplement and a prescription drug called Finasteride. But does it actually work or is it all just clever marketing? Let’s find out…
Put simply, PTD-DBM is a peptide that inhibits a protein called CXXC5. CXXC5 prevents hair growth. Using PTD-DBM we can prevent CXXC5 from interfering with hair growth. Here’s how…
Cetirizine is a cheap anti-allergy medication. It’s thought to reduce PGD2 when applied to the scalp. In one experiment, 1% cetirizine was applied to the scalps of subjects and ‘significant hair growth’ was reported.
Way 316-606 reduces hair loss and promotes hair growth by blocking SFRP1 from damaging hair follicles in the scalp. SFRP1 is a protein that interferes with hair growth. By blocking the protein, hair grows uninhibited.
Androgenic alopecia (AGA), also called male-pattern baldness, is the most common form of hair loss and has been associated with other dysfunctions such as coronary heart disease and an enlarged prostate. It seems that PGD2 prevents the hair follicles from maturing There have been numerous studies concerning androgenic alopecia but more data is needed to […]
CB 03 01 is a topical hair loss treatment that works by binding with androgen receptors in the hair follicles, helping to reduce the amount of DHT that’s able to bind with the receptors.

Sphinganine is a potent 5-alpha reductase inhibitor and an anti-inflammatory.
One published study has stated cinnamon increases hair growth by increasing blood vessel vasodilation and the growth factor IGF-1. However, another study has shown that it decreases the growth factor VEGF.
VETA is a hair loss treatment that works primarily by increasing blood circulation in the scalp. Would I recommend it? Let’s find out…
Lavender oil has shown some surprisingly impressive hair growth stimulating results. Seemingly via its anti-inflammatory action.
According to several different studies, ‘Substance P’ acts as a growth factor in the hair follicles. One researcher has even stated that Substance P induces the hair follicles to transition from resting phase to growth phase!
The rumour is — and it is only a rumour — that Jennifer Anniston and Demi Moore take HGH injections to maintain a youthful appearance. But can HGH be used to make new hair grow?
Wnt-signaling leads to the increased production of proteins required for hair growth. By maintaining or upregulating the Wnt-signaling pathways in the hair follicles we can increase hair growth and prolong the growth phase of hair.
Nutraviv is a mild, natural topical DHT blocker that reduces scalp DHT with the use of azelaic acid. Read below to see if I think it’s worth using.
Anthralin is an anti inflammatory cream that works by suppressing cytokines.
